Pinned topic GPFS question from FAQ

‏2013-02-07T22:04:00Z |
Have a client who asked the following question:

It looks like there is good progress made on GPFS support for VMware.

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/clresctr/vxrx/topic/com.ibm.cluster.gpfs.doc/gpfs_faqs/gpfsclustersfaq.html#virtualq

A2.6

2. GPFS V3.5 NSD servers has been tested with VMWare ESXi5.1 pass-through disks and is supported with the following limitations:

o Only Pass-through Raw Device Mapping (RDM) with physical compatibility mode is supported.

o Use of GPFS in conjunction with vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT) and migration with vSphere vMotion is not supported.
*bold*Questions:
Does this mean FT + VMotion is not supported?

Or is FT not supported and regardless of FT, VMotion is not supported either?

Please advise!

Thanks,
Pete Dragovich

    Thanks for your query. It does not support:
    1) vSphere Fault Tolerance
    2) vSphere vMotion
